I'm specifically interested in USABILIT Y of these cameras, how they handle in the field, etc...

A7 battery life is miserable vs E-M1

Nothing a spare (or 2) can't solve...

true, however it is still a hassle... and E-M1 is miserable vs Panasonic... and Panasonic is miserable vs dSLRs and those vs all manual film cameras... the point here is - if you make a top level camera with grip - do supply it with a greater capacity battery, as it is not intended to be a pocketable camera.

I miss fully articulated LCD of my pre E-M1 GH3 camera (both in A7 and in E-M1)

I find a dedicated exposure comp in A7 dial totally useless

I guess you don't use 'Manual Mode with Auto-ISO' a lot...

I do not use Auto-ISO because I know which gain is optimal for raw conversion w/ my raw converters for my purposes - so I just set that ISO for a particular situation, if you don't or if you are a JPG shooter then we are sailling in different boats... note that I wrote "I find", w/o generalizing.

more effort to make zebra in A7 show raw clipping vs real time blinkies in E-M1

Channel/colour clipping is the right solution...

I prefer to meter properely before the shot, did I say that I was not using UniWB and post shot blinkes and histogram ? I use them too, but I tune my cameras to have all things available for me and that includes real time zebra/blinkes in EVF/LV, spot metering to place the spot into the right zone (as we establish the headroom with rawdigger) _and_ post shot review with both blinkies and UniWB tuned OOC JPG histogram... now there are indeed some better ideal solutions that are not available, so theoretically I want them too, but I can't have them...
